thunderbird --ProfileManager
« on: April 25, 2022, 03:04:13 am »
I was running Thunderbird-68.12.0 and Firefox-68.12.0esr.  As you can imagine, lots of website don't work properly, for me, company payroll site, income tax site, old school email, and others.  So, I finally decided to bite the bullet and upgrade.

Main problem I encountered was Firefox and Thunderbird didn't use my old data.  I have shit loads of account settings, filter rules, and emails.  After many 4 letter words, I managed to figure out how to configure Firefox and Thunderbird to use my old profiles.
Code: [Select]
thunderbird --ProfileManager
firefox --ProfileManager
